The DSS "standard" is proprietary belonging to DIRECTV. Unlike DVB, 
documentation on the standard is not available.
It is not just the single switch that matters. There will need to be API 
changes as well. And to top it up there aren't any userspace 
applications yet. The packet size is also different, 127 rather than 188.

Someone has the specs .. ?
